The FAQs are definitely guiderules...or are they rulelines? No matter. The FAQs *absolutely* detail site policy and all members are expected to follow them and abide by them.

Having been a beta tester for the EDIT system, have nothing but praise for this feature! It's been a huge leap in getting the name fields clean up per the naming conventions found in the FAQs (these are not optional nor subject to interpretation).

The naming convention clean-ups I am concentrating on are:

Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

Maiden Name - If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name - Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Any photos I've added to this site are open for anyone to use, no permission or credit needed.

I strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.

Copy-and-paste census, military and other data is not a "bio". Please don't send these type of bios because they will not be added.

Finally, I will not add a link to a burial unknown memorial. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason. Not a difficult concept.

Thank you
Just wanted to say thanks again for the Edit with the Mrs on the memorial, plus I'll send the edits for the Ayer family members. I was excited to see that you had that part of my family.

Your Constant Harassment
Please Stop your Harassment of other contributors and myself regarding names. You have shown/proven you are not an expert/authority.
Perhaps you should work on correcting & improving the memorials you have posted.
We are not paid for our time & your harassment is not appreciated.

names gleaned from secondary sources

as a Family historian I have been told over and over again NEVER quote secondary sources only what you yourself can see. SO I shall not accept edits that suggest I should use secondary source information. I have personally proved that even city cemetery databases have an amazing 20% error rate.

RE: Helen Mone photo
You're welcome, and thank you. I've noticed (with this cemetery, at least) a lot of married women's middle initials are there maiden names.

Sorry, I just figured it out. Cyrus Ristenbatt and Lucy Snyder were married. Cyrus is related to Charles through his mother. Charles parents were John Wenrich and Amelia Ristenbatt.

Just wanted to let you know that Clara's maiden name was Bufflap. Her parents were Christian Gottleib Bufflap and Mary Ellen Zerbe. I think Lucy might be his second wife.

This is what the family put on the marker, so I will keep it as is. Thanks for your concern.
